With just under a month to go before the game is released worldwide, the WWE 2K23 soundtrack has officially been revealed with a surprising influence. John Cena will be doing more than gracing the cover of this year’s release, as he’s been confirmed as the Executive Producer for the game’s musical selections.

In this article, you will learn: 

  • The full WWE 2K23 soundtrack song list 
  • How to listen to the soundtrack

The game itself will first reach fans with an early access release date of March 14, but the WWE 2K23 soundtrack has already been unveiled. For the second year in a row, Visual Concepts have chosen a unique name to serve as Executive Producer for the soundtrack.

Following in the footsteps of Machine Gun Kelly, who served as Executive Producer for the WWE 2K22 soundtrack, John Cena has hand-picked a lineup of 12 different tracks for the WWE 2K23 soundtrack.

Here is the full WWE 2K23 soundtrack song list: 

  • “Sad But True” – Metallica
  • “Quevedo: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 52” – Bizarrap, Quevdo
  • “Vegas (From the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack ELVIS)” – Doja Cat
  • “SUVs” – Luciano
  • “Can’t Stop” – Red Hot Chili Peppers
  • “Ramen & OJ” – Joyner Lucas, Lil Baby
  • “JACK” – HARDY
  • “No More Tears To Cry” – Bullet For My Valentine

  • “Shipwreck” – Letdown.
  • “Grounds” – IDLES
  • “Take What You Want (feat. Ozzy Osbourne & Travis Scott)” – Post Malone

You can listen to all the tracks right now, on Apple Music.

As of now, there isn’t an official Spotify playlist from 2K, however, you can find a custom-created one here featuring all 12 confirmed WWE 2K23 soundtrack songs. When WWE 2K23 arrives, it’ll likely include a feature seen last year that allows players to mix and match WWE theme songs with the WWE 2K23 soundtrack for a more curated experience where specific songs can be left out if desired.

While some fans might know John Cena more for his wrestling and film experience or be focused on his presence as the WWE 2K23 cover star, he actually brings plenty of musical experience to his work on the WWE 2K23 soundtrack. Though practically pure meme at this point, John Cena’s longtime entrance theme “The Time Is Now” is from his debut studio album alongside his cousin Tha Trademarc.

The album, dubbed You Can’t See Me, was released in 2005 with over 143,000 copies sold in week one with a mix of rap and R&B throughout that paid homage to classic two-man duos trading verses throughout each song. Since that debut, John Cena has been featured in tracks from The Perceptionists and T-Boz, and he was in two songs with Wiz Khalifa for the WWE 2K15 soundtrack.

Even before his studio album took off, John Cena recorded his earlier WWE theme song “Basic Thuganomics” which was first released in 2003. There have been rumors and discussions for years about a second album, but as of now a full-length studio release hasn’t arrived from John Cena since his debut in 2005. For fans that have been hoping for more, the WWE 2K23 soundtrack offers a glimpse at his personal artistic tastes.
